The past few years have seen Riccardo Tisci and Nike joining forces on a number of high-profile footwear collections. They include reimagined classics, like the Air Force 1 and Dunk, as well as new takes on a performance training shoe and Chelsea boot. This season, the celebrated designer returns to the Dunk silhouette, creating the new NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT, inspired by both skate culture and retro '80s basketball. Built with full-grain leather, the shoe features exaggerated proportions on the big belly Swoosh and enlarged foxing and eyestay. Additional details include rolled edges on the upper and the RT logo and Nike swoosh debossed on the heel, along with the removal of perforations on the toe box. A Lunarlon insole and memory foam in the quilted leather collar and tongue combine to deliver all-day comfort.
Look for the NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT to be available beginning February 10 at NikeLab at Bergdorf Goodman, NikeLab 21M, Dover Street Market New York, Kith BK and Concepts NYC. A global launch through NikeLab retailers and nike.com/nikelab follows on February 23.
